Here at Big Thicket Hearing Aids & Audiology, our community’s hearing health is close to our hearts and is why we set out to serve the good people of Hardin County with hearing care and hearing aids at affordable prices.

No one chooses to go through hearing loss, but if it happens, it’s comforting to know that the highly experienced team here at Big Thicket will look after you without it costing the earth. If you already know you need hearing aids, we can provide precision fitting with our latest 3D ear scanning technology.

We’re officially the only hearing clinic in the whole of East Texas to offer this incredible technology and at no extra cost to our patients.
